Book Description

28 Feb 2012
Internationally bestselling author and economist Lorretta Napoleoni delivers an insightful overview of the events that have shaped the past decade. Beyond terrorism, 10 Years That Shook The World covers issues as diverse as financial policy, advances in science and technology, new economic policies, propaganda, the social media revolution and more. Told in short, twitter-like bursts of information, each chapter triggers readers' personal memories of those years and allows them to trace patterns through the decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Puts Everything into Perspective 25 Feb 2012
By E. Chang - Published on Amazon.com
Excellent book detailing 2001-2011 in "tweet-like" entries, totally 167 pages. Kind of like a very, very detailed timeline of the Earth and it's geopolitical/cultural events. I read the front page of the major papers every day but today's page 10 news sometimes in hindsight has page 1 reverberations so I actually learned quite alot about what has happened in the past decade. The other great thing about this book is that it covers the entire world - so while reading it you get a real sense of the world as a SINGLE entity. You see small infections take on cancerous proportions in later years, you see small local teams become major league players - all in very readable and easy to digest text. Highly recommended.
3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting timeline 24 Jun 2012
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
If you want a general timeline of what has gone on in the world in the last 10 years - this is it.
Each year, starting with 2001, has an introductory page listing such information as the GDP of the world, the U.S., Japan and Germany, world population, natural disasters, Time magazine person of the year, Nobel Peace Prize winners. There is a short summing up introduction, and then several pages of incidents that happened during the year.

These pages listing the events are where the book falls short, they are not in chronological order and many do not have dates, even a month. So, what this book does is give you an idea of what happened in the year, but it would make so much more sense to have the facts in chronological order, instead of the jumbled listing of happenings.
